Pentecost - June 4

posted Jun 2, 2017, 8:53 AM by Bowmansville UMC

On June 4, 2017, Christians around the world will observe Pentecost Sunday.  This day signifies the day Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and the Holy Spirit descended to bless His apostles. The word is taken from the Greek term "pentekoste," meaning "fiftieth." It was the fiftieth day after Easter Sunday when Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles.

At BUMC, we will celebrate the Day of Pentecost by wearing RED. The Worship Committee also asks that you bring a RED candle and a RED flowering plant for the altar. If you like, you may take your flower home or leave it to be planted at the church.

Confirmation Class

posted Feb 23, 2017, 12:38 PM by Bowmansville UMC

Do you have children who need confirmation into the Methodist church, no matter what the age? Do you as parents remember your confirmation? Or would you like to accompany your children in confirmation sessions as a neat way to show your support and get a "refresher" into what Methodist means!

Confirmation classes will require travel to other churches & places, so parent participation would be a plus!

Pastor Jim

Please advise Pastor Jim or Sandy of your desire to be included in a confirmation class.
